|There may not be a Spinelli's, a Tim Ho Wan or a Ding Tai Fung. But it's great. Beauty World Centre (completed in 1984) is an example of how a place can be spruced up without losing its characteristics. However there was a news report earlier this year that its food centre on the 4th floor (same floor as this 'rojak' provision shop in the picture -- rubber balls bunched up like grapes, so reminiscent of childhood) is going to be bought up by a mysterious someone -- for some $17 m-- and to be converted into an aircon place!|
Oh dear. So I hared to the place. Managed to try its Beijing dumplings so far -- almost translucent skin with crunchy fillings full of freshly chopped vegetables and pork. Dipped into black vinegar and thin ginger shreds -- simply delicious. Many more stalls to try -- satay beehoon, mutton soup, wanton mee. I could already smell the mutton soup while tucking in my steamed dumplings. Stall holders are all so patient and friendly too. A pity they will close their business to give way to another boring aircon food centre with nondescript food.
At least, let me try its char kuay teow first.
